Red Label 2017 is a full-bodied Zinfandel with some Sirah sourced from old vines in Amador County and cooler sites in Paso Robles and Sonoma. Perfumed with ripe dark fruit and toasty spices, a bit of Petite Sirah is blended in to enhance the strawberry compote, light herbs, cake spices and vanilla flavours on this lush red. Pair with grilled pork ribs or beef sliders.

Zinfandel food pairings: BBQ ribs, roast chicken, turkey.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
